Thank you Anne-Marie, hard work but most rewarding!
 
The most excitement you can have without doing anything at all! I miss those crazy Valencianos, especially during Fallas festival in March. If you've never stood beneath the thunderous roar of a Valencian 'Mascletà' (daytime firework display) and felt the ground shake so much your heart nearly stops, then you you probably wont fully get this video. It's all about the rhythm and musicality, the pungent stench of gun powder and a deafening finale that will make your heart beat so fast you will think it has stopped. If you haven't got the patience for the foreplay, I mean build up, skip to minute 4:10 or thereabouts.

Treasury Time
My blog has been sadly neglected over the winter as I commenced a part time course in December. Ironically, it's a diploma in journalism.  This pretty treasury landed in my Etsy shop inbox last night and kick started me into blogging again. Treasuries  are ...

The newest Eco Faux Furs piece - the Arizona Skull 6 in 1 coat - was created over the weeks of October for gorgeous Finnish MP Leena Harkimo. We got together one day in September to view through my fashion collection from which she picked the Swan Cape to wear at the Kauppalehti Optiogaala party. Worn indoors she found the cape quite warm, however otherwise very nice, and an idea of an Eco faux Fur vest or a convertible coat for every...

love to see work in progress...the detailing at the top of the jumper is lovely
I like being my own boss: that allows me to knit things for myself instead of for "Ze Bisnesss" sometimes. Not that I'm really successful and can afford it (selling an average of 2 knitting patterns per week is not going to p...

Introduction
Irish jewellery artist, hill walker, beach comber & blogger from Dublin. (Ok I do have a day job too.) I wire-wrap & bead jewellery, accessories, bookmarks & ornaments. I love to use rare, local materials such as Connemara green, Kilkenny black & Cork red marbles. I also use beach glass, sea pottery & slate hand-picked from the shore & upcycled buttons etc.

Through this blog, I showcase my work, give tips related to care of jewellery, crafting & anything remotely related & share a glimpse of the beautiful Irish scenery that inspires me to create.
